TX-HD112:In key North Texas House race, Button touts experience, Chambers says district needs a 'fig

After 12 years in the Texas Legislature, state Rep. Angie Chen Button says she’s learned all the places to look when searching for funding for a project.

That has helped the Garland Republican find money in the state budget for her legislative priorities, like increasing health care access for women and children and reducing the state’s rape kit backlog. That experience, she said, and her relationships with other lawmakers — including Democrats — is the reason voters should send her back to Austin next January.
“Next session is going to be extremely tough,” she said. “We need a leader with a proven record and forward-thinking vision who can work across the aisle building consensus and getting things done. That is me.”

But her Democratic opponent, Brandy K. Chambers, said House District 112 — which spans northeast Dallas County through Richardson, Garland, Sachse and Rowlett — has been under Button’s “vacuum of leadership” for far too long.

On issues like standing up for LGBT people, immigrants, and low-income Texans, Chambers said, Button’s moderate Republican approach does not cut it.
